The PGA Tour’s Fall Series got off to a fast start last week in Las Vegas with a leader board full of low numbers, including Pro V1 loyalist Ryan Moore’s 10-under par 61 which had everyone on 59 watch during Thursday's first round. Moore followed up the early-round performance with scores of 68-65-66 for a 24-under 260 total to take home top honors at the 2012 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
“It's one of those weeks that it all just kind of went my way," said Moore. "I was able to start out great and shoot 10-under the first day, and that kind of put me into position so I could just play solid golf from that point on and still have a really good chance to win; that's what I did."
Joining Moore in the winners’ circle this week, Pro V1 loyalist Bernhard Langer (SAS Championship – Champions Tour) along with Pro V1x loyalists David Lingmerth (Neediest Kids Championship – Web.com Tour), K.J. Choi (CJ Invitational Hosted by KJ Choi – Asian Tour) and Titleist Brand Ambassador Zhi Peng Fan (China PGA Champions Tour Ordos). With these wins, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x players have now won 148 times across the worldwide professional tours in 2012, more than nine times the nearest competitor with 16 and more than all competitors combined.
An alumnus of UNLV, Moore had the hometown crowd cheering him down the stretch as he traded shots with Titleist Brand Ambassador Brendon DeJonge, who finished one shot behind in solo second with a 23-under 261 total.
“To come out on top, it's an incredible feeling. The last couple days it was tough. I mean, I was shot for shot with Brendon and he was playing some great golf. I was just able to make a birdie at the right time there at the end and just hold him off,” added Moore.
Rounding out the top three, Pro V1x loyalist Jonas Blixt finished in solo third with a 20-under 264 total.
Earlier in the week the practice range was buzzing with the appearance of white boxes full of new Pro V1 and Pro V1x prototype golf balls. This week marked the beginning of the tour seeding and performance validation process on the PGA Tour. Click here for a closer look at the action.
Titleist was the most played golf ball in the field of 132, with 85 players, including 18 of whom put the new Pro V1 (4) and Pro V1x (14) prototype golf balls in the play the first week they were available for competition. Titleist was also the top choice in sand, lob and approach wedges (98) and putters (50).
